6. Reconfirmation: Schedule changes are quite common today. We urge you to re-check exact flight times prior to departure and prior to your return.
7. Package Trips: If you book a trip, we must collect the tour operator's or cruise line’s deposit when reservations are made. The amount of the deposit, the refund allowed, and the times for canceling vary according to the tour operator or cruise line. We do not endorse or recommend any particular tour operator or cruise line; our role is strictly limited to facilitating the booking. After you finish your booking, we will send you any agreement required by the travel services supplier, along with a request that you sign that agreement and return it to us. In the event of any inconsistency between that agreement and this agreement, the latter shall govern.

Charter Trips: If your package trip involves a charter flight, or if your vacation involves an air-on1y charter night, federal regulations require that you also sign the charter operator's participant agreement, which will be mailed to you.

a. Departure rimes (both going and returning) can change at the last minute. These delays legally can be as much as 48 hours (approximately two days late).
b. Your flight may be advertised as non-stop; however, the operator may legally change the routing and make intermediate stops at the last minute.
c. The charter operator may 1egally-substitute types of aircraft and even airline at the last minute. Charter aircraft are generally not as comfortable as the scheduled aircraft.
d. The charter operator generally takes no responsibility for baggage It is not unusual to have luggage misplaced.
e. Charter trips have very stiff cancellation penalties. No one plans a trip with the idea of canceling; however, sometimes that becomes necessary and you must understand what to expect or not to expect in the way of refunds.
f. Usually, no frequent flier miles are accrued.
g. Advance seat assignments are frequently not available.
